Deep Learning for Image Recognition in industrial setting: a Tenaris use case

How to train and productionize a deep learning model for image recognition in industrial setting


Machine Learning can support people in repetitive tasks. In an industrial setting, this can dramatically improve the efficiency and the safety of operations. In this talk you will follow the journey of training and productionize a deep learning model for image classification, that will be connected to an automatic guided machine.


Jacopo Balocco, 28 years old, works as a Data Scientist in the Data Science team in Tenaris. He daily works on algorithms and systems for data classification, anomaly detection and optimization. He holds a degree in Physics of Complex Systems from Università degli Studi di Torino.

Michele Zanchi, 24 years old, is the latest acquisition of Tenaris Data Science team. He is as Software Engineer and during his Master Thesis worked with Tenaris Data Science on improving the robustness of deep learning models and on their deploy to production.
